Vintage Falstaff Beer Picnic Cooler

This cooler measures 17" long 9" wide and with the handle is 14 ½" tall. Has a couple of dings and scratches on the outside but they are minor. Color is still very good and the inside is rust free and in usable condition. Bottom is intact but not in great shape. All sides and bottom are shown. This is a hard to find cooler and this one is better than most. This box never had an opener on the side (no holes for it) seal is still fairly good. Handle comes apart at the top and then you can take the lid off. Over all condition (if a 10 is mint) I would grade this between a 7 and 8. This unique steel cooler from the 1950's would be a great addition to any beer collection or a wonderful display item. Falstaff Brewing was the story of two St. Louis based brewing families, the Lamps and the Griesediecks. Personal tragedy to the Lamp family and the economic effects of prohibition caused the Lamps to sell in receivership the business to the Griesediecks. Who then marketed near beer, soft drinks and cured hams under the "Falstaff"name. The name comes from the renaming of the company in 1906, with the Shakesperean character Sir John Falstaff. The company production of Falstaff peaked in 1965 while by 2005 the main label "Falstaff" was out of production. The cooler has the early period powder coated paint finish and the embossed "Falstaff" logo with most of the original paint .
